Another finished figure painting. I had high hopes for this painting but I’m not so impressed with the finished product.

I was very close to stopping this painting and starting a still life, but I figured if I stop now I will probably never finish it.

The background was painted very thin this time I’m trying to get it to recede as much as possible.

In The Bend: Session 3

I spent an hour refining the drawing and getting a better understanding of the form of the figure.

In The Bend: Session 2

I spent an hour refining this drawing and I’m thinking about taking more time on the drawing than normal.
